TitleWING AP Load Balancing
The primary use of load-balancing between Access Points is for auditorium and stadium environments with a high concentration of wireless clients. Load balancing is required to distribute the wireless clients between the Access Point radios to reduce overloading a single Access Point. It’s also important to have a high Access Point density in the area where load-balancing is configured so wireless clients will have good signal connecting to any Access Point configured for load-balancing.
If load balancing needs to be configured in an auditorium it is mandatory that the load-balancing group- id parameter and value, be defined in the Access Point profile servicing the Access Points in the auditorium. Load-balancing also needs to be enabled in the Wireless LANs to indicate with Wireless LANs support load-balancing.
